Living in the east with luxury, and a view of a lifetime.

THERE Is a buzz lately that there is an oversupply of Condominium in Metro Manila, this in spite of reality that Condos are now here there in everywhere. Is it also a fact that many considers to have a certificate of lot  or title, rather than having a posh unit in a towering building in Makati, Manila or in Quezon City, but to some who’s kinda blessed enough financially, to have a house in a nearby province is a wish.
Last March 15, from a friend connected to PrimeEast Properties, Inc, we got a chance to tour and explore the East, were the future high end City with majestic view of a lifetime is located,  of course with a budget friendly rates, no other than the Eastridge in the province of Rizal.
The almost 1,000 hectares EastRidge  is under the boundaries of five Municipalities in Rizal. The Angono, Morong, Binangonan, Teresa and Antipolo.  It is tag as the paradise on the top of the mountain due to its 200 meters above sea level location, so from there you can imagine how cold …

FILM REVIEW: BAMBANTI

RATING: 4/5
By Trixie Dauz
Contributor


            Bambanti, when translated in English, means scarecrow. It is also a festival in Isabela province where the film is set, a festival coupled with dancing and a colorful façade. A scarecrow scares birds based on its outside appearance, with the birds thinking that it’s some kind of monster, thus preventing them from getting to the harvest. It is the perfect metaphor for the story of this film about making judgements based on outside appearances.  
            The premise of the film is simple. A dirt-poor mother and her boy who have been doing chores for their relatives (in-laws to be precise) as a means of earning money were in the wrong place at the wrong time. About 20-30 minutes into the film, a golden watch disappears, accusations are hurled, and the boy, a known prankster, was highly suspected to be the culprit. This situation alone would bring to mind the Filipino short story “Ang Kalupi” by Benjamin Pascual, where a dirty-looking…

Showcase of exceptional talents at Into The Woods.

Upstart Productions present, Into the Woods
By Aga Posadas Contributor
Once upon a time, there was a story staged on Broadway with good music and concept. The creators put a modern and dark twist on several Brothers Grimm fairy tales. It was spectacular. It was even made into a film very recently.
Then some Filipinos thought of staging Into the Woods with some of the great actors in the country. Here's the thing, I have a huge problem with Broadway plays produced in Manila, presented as it is, especially that the film version is still at the height of fame. It becomes just a showcase of the actors' talents. It's just like watching a local Sunday noon-time show. Upstart's production latest production is just like that. 
It's like watching a school play with really exceptional acting. Staging it in a real garden, with real trees as the backdrop, was a very good idea. However, there was failure in other technical aspects. The props and costumes looked like the produce…

DermPlus: Endless fun under the Philippine Sun

Who doesn't love a little fun in the sun? The beach can be a perfect way to spend the day and get some summer moments with your loved ones. Summer means sun, shorts, sandals, bathing suits, and bronzed skin. But with beach hair and shorter hemlines comes the dangers that not only instigate the probability of skin cancer, but the aging process as well. Sun exposure is, essentially, subjecting yourself to sun damage – but in the same note, avoiding the outdoors altogether is both impractical and nearly impossible. Specially when you have pretty active little kids with you. 
Dermplus Moisturizing Sunblock is the answer to your skin problems this summer. It is formulated with unbeatable UVA and UVB filters to protect your skin in the harsh ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Dermplus sunblock physically blocks and reflects light and it also helps heal skin damage caused by over-exposure to the sun.  Dermplus Sunblock is available in different SPFs like SPF 24 that is recommended for mo…
